In order to fulfil its objectives, the Society owns and runs the Village Pre-School as a non-profit-making community facility and has exclusive management rights over Common Wood
The Society coordinates and represents views and concerns of residents and other village groups on community matters and is a Recognised Community Hub – by the the local planning authority Buckinghamshire Council and the police – for all major development proposals and applications. The Society is represented on the local Neighbourhood Action Group (NAG) which works with the police to identify policing priorities.
The Society generates its income largely through advertisements in “Village Voice”. Any surplus after taking account of expenses can be disbursed to local voluntary organisations in accordance with the charitable objectives of the Society.
Woods and Open Spaces
Common Wood was purchased by the Penn & Tylers Green Residents Society in 2003 following an extensive public campaign and the support of The Woodland Trust, the Chiltern Society and the Lottery Heritage Fund. Through a leaseback arrangement with The Woodland Trust in 2009 the Society has been able to safeguard the wood for the benefit of the local community, secured for the future as a public woodland. It is committed to providing open access to all, and has set about an extensive management programme of both the natural habitat and the paths and access points throughout the wood. The Society works closely with and is represented on the Chiltern Woodland Project.
The Society also owns and manages Millar Wood on Elm Road and the greens at the junction of Coppice Farm Road and Hazlemere Road.
The Residents Society runs the Village Pre-school on a “not-for-profit” basis. The school is open every day in term time and meets at the Methodist Church in Coppice Farm Road.
Our aim is to encourage the development of happy, confident children from 2 to 5 years who learn all the time through a mixture of creative and structured play and exciting activities.
